It was Monday, under the sign of Leo. The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of July people in US were listening to Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen. The Bourne Legacy, directed by Tony Gilroy, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2012 while Mick by Christopher Andersen was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Farouk Omar. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk or Battle of the Bulge.
